Vegan & Vegetarian Food

Post by round bits of plastic » Fri Oct 12, 2007 11:41

I just wondered if there are any other vegan pop kids. I can only think of one other than myself.

If people make themselves known I promise to share my super-ace muffin recipe with you :-)

i'm not but the bloke i'm currently seeing is. my vegan cooking extends to:

goan curry
thai curry
noodles
pasta
sausage and mash


not exactly impressive.

i've gotten used to having soya milk in my tea now.

have you tried rice milk? that's fun, better in dcoffee too. quioa milk is ACE but tres expensive.

i like your list of foods, but you seemed to have missed out on the most obvious one: beans on toast :-)

i've not tried it, i'm not that into ice cream really. Though I have been pleased in the past to discover dead cheap n nasty style choc-ices, as well as vegan vienetta!

man, when i had the vienetta i felt like my mum should be sitting next to me watching blind date before she went off down the social club.

did you know there's vegan white chocolate? and feta! i saw vegan bleedin feta! I'm more of a rice and pea man myself..

I was vegan for about a year and a half but I stopped for health reasons. I wasn't really doing it properly and taking enough care to eat the right things, so I started eating some cheese and the odd thing with milk in it (chocolate mainly - not that it's healthy, I just wanted it). I still eat mostly vegan things though, and I've got a notion to go back to it.
To be honest though, I didn't enjoy being vegan. It was a pain in the arse. I can't morally justify not being vegan though with the way I feel about farming and the way animals are treated.

I’m surprised you found it a pain in the arse. I’ve been vegan for um (thinking) a bit over 6 years now. At first I didn’t have any idea what was going on, but after say, the first 6 months I found easy peasy.

Yr in glasgow right? I know there’s some vegan places up there, and I heard that Mono is opening a new restaurant (called Stereo I believe). Maybe because I quite enjoy a bit of cooking I find it easier (boy cooking though, everything flying around the kitchen and a pathological inability to follow a recipe).

Most people I’ve known have found that milk in particular is disgusting if they’ve ever had it after a long time off it. It has a really weird “animal-y� fatty taste to it. Ick, I’m having flashbacks of the time someone accidentally put cow milk in my coffee.

you should be able to get the white chocolate here http://www.veganstore.co.uk somwhere. i would think other places too, possibly the animal aid shop and so on.

as for the feta, it's made by Redwoods, I saw it in Rosemary's in Wolverhampton, but it should be available from any health/wholefood store. I think this http://www.redwoodfoods.co.uk/products/ ... index.html is it, but it's hard to tell, i thought it said Feta on the label when i saw it. it was in a little jar and everything.

I eat some things with the odd trace of milk in them, plus cheese, but actual milk is pretty gross. Soya milk all the way.

i don't really do any kind of milk. i only use it for cooking. I can heartily recomend oat milk, rice milk, pea milk, and quinoa milk. i've never tried almond milk but that's meant to be ace.

I once had this stuff called Tiger White which is made from Chufas (a kind of cactus i think) and that was WEIRD. not unpleasant, but WEIRD.

Hello.
I'm a vegan boy.
I'm real bad at it though. Just houmous sandwiches. I actually feel a bit woozy.
But I care more about animals than food and care more about veganism than my health.
Because I'm an idiot. But a soppy idiot.
Tiger White is yer actual Tigermilk, which they had during the war to replace cow milk. There's a B&S reference everywhere you only look for it!

Ag! don't be a rubbish vegan!

It's your fault i'm fat! if it weren't for your lot i could be a skinny vegan without feeling like i was letting the side down.

that or maybe i drink too much. i can send you tasty good time recipes if you want em? not just for cake though. frankly i'm sick of the notion that CAKE is new to vegans... i know, i know, i'm jaded and smelly and should just go off somewhere and die of a SOY*verdose..

but yea, eat nice for, for real, it's more fun


*i don't actually eat THAT much soya (especially when you consider that 70% of all processed foods contain soya.)

I've been vegan for, let's see, about 16 years, and I'm still not that great of a cook, though I manage. Veggie stir fry with rice is always a reliably tasty standby, as is pasta + tofu with assorted steamed veggies. A bit more effort is spicy (heavy on the cumin) curries with coconut milk; that one always goes down well with skeptical guests. Hummous and falafel is always awesome, of course... as is Kerelan/South Indian food made with fake ghee.

Almond milk rules. It is bloody expensive, however.

i figured out how to do "egg" fried rice! using gram flour, it's ridiculously easy and looks the part. hah! i only did it because i was challenged.

Cheezcake is my speciality. My bestest one is spiced chocolate orange.

i was thinking about applying for a job at mono's new place. but scotland is really very far away.

i'm not vegan, just so's you know. i do use soy milk on my cereal, though, and in my coffee most of the time.
How do you stop the soya milk from curdling in coffee?

Mono cheesecake is heaven.

Please can someone tell me you make vegan cheescake?!!!
